I remember when Cronkite died a few years back, I mentioned it to the family as a matter of course and they looked at me and "who was he?!" He'd not been nightly news anchor for 28 years by the age he died at. My grown children had no idea who he was. I've often thought it was interesting how much attention someone famous does or not receive based on how far from their famous years they've lived before dying. I sometimes think maybe that's why Betty White stays so busy, because when she finally goes, everyone will still remember her, even if not the younger years. Same for George Burns when he died.
